Hate Notes by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Hate Notes final ebook cover


It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.
Something blue.
I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”
Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.
The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.
He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.
But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.
Something new.
But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .
So, I have to be honest & say that I didn't think anything could top my love of the Rebel Heir duet which these fantastic authors collaborated on recently. Well - man was I wrong. Hate Notes by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward is a wonderful contemporary romance that will have you fully captivated from start to finish.  "God. So dirty, yet at the same time, so beautiful."

Told in first person, from dual perspectives, this story of heartbreak, unexpected closeness, forgiveness, & fresh starts, won't disappoint. Sexy, funny "The dress was my spirit animal..." & get you in the gut - will they, won't they angst.  Charlotte is wise beyond her crazy "Deep down, buried underneath all that crazy, was a woman who believed in fairy tales." She'll make you want to too...  Reed is bent on keeping his distance to protect his heart & the secret behind the decisions he makes.  A few surprising emotional & gasp worthy turns add depth to this romance.  Loving & fun supporting characters bring this story full circle.

"...love the life you have, while you work on the life you want."

I love the internal dialogue, no holds barred bickering & cat-and-mouse chase.  Sexy as hell  -  So many great wise words to live by 
"Just keep swimming."  

"...focus on things that make me happy instead of dwelling on the past, which I can't change."

"...strong - perfectly imperfect."
